Victim identified, arrests made in Payne County homicide
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says three men have been arrested in connection with the death of a man whose badly burned body was discovered inside a smoldering fire in rural Payne County.
Firefighters found the body of 38-year-old Michael Dwayne Hamilton of Stillwater in a burning brush pile in a field southwest of Stillwater early Wednesday.
Investigators say they identified three Stillwater men on Thursday who are suspected of being involved in Hamilton’s death. Officials say Greg Guard, Gary Schaffner, and Anthony Endrina were interviewed at the Stillwater Police Department and then arrested in connection with the case. Their ages were not immediately released.
Investigators say they believe Hamilton was murdered on Tuesday at Guard’s home in Stillwater and then transported to the field to be disposed of.
